surely we can change

Victor Hugo said, “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent.”

Music has such an un-empirical quality in the way it pulls at your heart. At your soul. The way the perfect lyric is joined to the the perfect melody. The tenderness of a musical instrument mixed with its rawness.

And the result is something that cannot quite be measured in a quantifiable way.

I’ll save most of my thoughts on music for another day. For now, I leave you with a song that has been pulling at me.

It is a recognition of brokenness. Of our overwhelming need.

It is a recognition of a Love even more overwhelming. A reminder that Love changes us to bring change to the world.

What does it mean to be salt and light in the world?

Listen to the song a few times. Let it sink in.

Surely…. Surely we can change.
